Having issues with my computer playing graphically intense games. Changing settings doesn't significantly improve framerate. For example in FarCry 5 (which my pc meets the specs for) I ran the benchmark on high, medium and low settings.
High - ~19fps
Medium - ~22fps
Low - ~24fps
I can play older games at 30fps no problem for example oblivion is stable at 30fps.
What is weird to me is that it seems like changing settings should result in more than 2 extra fps.
I figure either my processor or my video card are creating a bottleneck or there is something else weird going on.
I did notice that hardwaremonitor says TMPIN5 is running 120 degrees Celsius but I look around online and a lot of people have the same issue with TMPIN5 on hardware monitor and some people seem to think it's a flaw in the software.
I know this is probably a hardware problem but I just don't know what piece of hardware needs to be replaced. Any advice on how to troubleshoot and help me figure out what the problem is would be much appreciated.
Here are my computer specs:
MSI x99A sli plus (MS-7885)
Intel i7 6800
32 gb of ram
